One of the weaker vintages for this estate yet still outstanding, the 2003 Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape delivers a surprisingly fresh profile, yet ten years after the vintage, it is entering the early stages of maturity. Loaded with red and black currants, iron, beef blood, rolled stone and garrigue on the nose, with no roasted fruit or over ripeness, it shines on the palate with excellent depth and richness. Medium to full-bodied, supple and integrated, with plenty of ripe fruit, it should continue to evolve for a handful of years. Consume it over the coming decade, max.

Medium garnet colour going a little brick in the rim. Kirsch, gingerbread, leather, raisins and tobacco aromas with some hung meat and game notes. The palate is very ripe, concentrated and full bodied with a medium+ level of acidity and a low to medium level of silky tannins. Long finish. Drink now to 2023. Tasted August 2009.
